    Incremental app updates will be a big deal with newer data limits

    I'm so glad I'm rooted and ROM'd. I've forgotten what Verizon BS tastes like.

    That's only HSPA version. I don't know why they won't sell the LTE version on there. I'm sure Verizon decided to throw their little tantrum when it was asked.

    Yeah, I know, but still, $349 for a phone like the GNex off contract? Once Verizon goes all LTE, this could be huge if Verizon allows unlimited to exist forever under the no subsidized upgrade rule.

    I think so too especially with the way they are pushing Google Play content.

    I just told my wife last night that I was selling the G-Tab because I didn't need a tablet. Time for a change in my reasoning for selling it. "Uh, hunny, I really just didn't like it. That's why I didn't want it anymore. But look at this cool new device! I like it! Can I have it??"

    You need a bezel with tablets, you can't hold cradled in your hand like a phone...

    Yes, but I'm not holding it with my feet! It's just distastefully thick.

    I like the tablet. But the only thing I need a tablet for is reading books. I play games on my PS3. I don't like phone games or tablet games, I want a controller in my hands...fingers and hands get in the way. I don't care to take movies with me. I don't pay for movies or tv shows, that's what the internet is for. I don't care about magazines. Looks great though. I'm sure you guys that are getting it will really enjoy it.
